Beyond Streaming: Distribution, Social Impact, and the Power of Grassroots Audiences

October 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$20 – $25

There are more dynamic, rewarding, and remunerative pathways to distribution than selling your film to a streamer, or waiting for a juicy commercial deal that may never materialize.

Impact-driven distribution executed through the support of nonprofits, public libraries, grassroots networks, activists, educators, and local film champions is not only possible…it’s also a practical, economical pathway for many documentary film teams.

In this webinar, grassroots distribution expert Caitlin Boyle will chart the possibilities and logistics of grassroots and community distribution.

Topics include integrating social impact with audience-building and viewership, coordinating impact with traditional commercial distribution, identifying pathways for earning revenue through public screenings, and engaging local audiences at the heart of the film’s mission and message.

This event is being presented as part of “A Series For Filmmakers: Adapting to a Time of Change,” a three-part series designed for independent filmmakers at a time of uncertainty in the marketplace for films. Purchase a package to join us at all three events, or purchase tickets individually.
